Wasn’t a bad hike! Took my dog on a Sunday in February and there were patches of bare trail. We only did about 2.5 miles out-and-back cus it was so cold but it was fun! Will probably do the whole loop this summer.

There was lots of puddles and snow.

Nice paced walk and view of Spokane River

Not much wildlife or shade. Easy hike for most of the loop. I would recommend hiking shoes due to some hills that you have go climb. Overall, not bad for a quick trip when you don’t have all day.

Tons of hiking trails to choose from. Beautiful views.

Would have been nice if this ap told me the road to the trail was closed until end of may.

Took 4 kids they enjoyed the hike there was some ice spots.

Some snow still, trail is well marked and was a nice 3 hour hike.

There are a few trails you can take while you are there. The scenery is extremely lovely.

Great hiking trail through the woods with streams and lots of snow at about a mile in right now. Didn't use microspikes or snowshoes as the snow was wet and packed down most of the way up. Last mile had us post-holing a bit up to our knees in areas. Great views.

This trail definitely isn’t a “hard” trail. It’s a little lengthy (moreso if you get lost like I did) but the terrain is easily hiked. A peaceful trail with little shade which was perfect since it was a little chilly and overcast. It might be too hot during the summer.

good little hike. Breathtaking views.

There is no real hiking path. Also, I would rate the hiking here at moderate not easy.

Great to do with kids on a cloudy day. If it’s too sunny I could see how it would be too much for sun exposure and get sunburned. It’s a good pleasure hike with a nice view :)

Backpacked/snowshoed on 3/14/18. Trail was easy to follow even with a few feet of snow on it. Easy hike in, bridge was covered up to the railing with snow. The snow-capped boulders in free creek were beautiful. Falls are a 1/4 mile to the left after the bridge. Once there, pretty much slid down to the bottom. The climb back up was sapping, resulting in a pretty exhausting hike back to the trailhead. The hike is basically downhill on the way in and uphill on the way out. Really nice hike though.

Was unable to access the trail in mid March. Not a year round trail for on foot. You can rent snow shoes or do cross country skiing but the trail is unmaintained for winter climates.

So beautiful! I loved how one minute you’re down by the river and the next high up along the ridge.

It's a heavily traveled trail and a great one to start on. We usually hit this one in June each year for an overnight experience and the fishing in the upper lake is usually pretty good! Keep an eye out for moose and deer!

Looking great today!

Great 3 mile loop, well maintained, and beautiful views! the parking lot was packed and overfull and that made me a little nervous the trail would be packed. It was busy, but not so busy the trail was crowded or people were stepping on eachother. Good little afternoon hike!

One of my favorite places to hike and backpack!!!!!

A few areas pretty muddy today in 3/11/18 but not as bad as Sweet Connie. We only got out 4.28 miles before we had to turn around in Sweet Connie. Love this little loop on a beautiful morning.

Good trail. Amazing view and hot springs at the top.

Nice short hike up the hill. I’d do it again, as just a fun date.

Great Trail

Pulled in the Beauty Creek campground area and crossed a shallow creek to start the trail. Highly recommend wearing yaktracks or stabilicers right now. Nice hike in the trees but was expecting more views. Would rate this hike as moderate, not hard.
